Great place to eat, where all the nightlife begins

Excellent seafood and huge portions. The key lime pie was not great, surprisingly. Live music outside and piped inside.

Good food. Personable staff. Wonderful music. Captiva is a small village, but there is NO! parking. In season the main street - Andy Rosse Lane - is bumper to bumper. Between the cars and the people walking in the street it can be a real headache. Key Lime is a nice spot, but you've got to work for it!

We are so glad we found Keylime Bistro, at the end of Captiva. Breakfast on the porch made the drive well worth it.

Food was very good, a sax soloist playing made a great atmosphere. A special mention to their award winning key lime pie. Totally worth it.

Not sure why this place is so popular other than it's quite nice dining outside and it has pretty fairy lights. My scallops in bacon and coconut shrimp were overlooked and dry with over-sweet sauce accompaniments, the husband's seafood pasta looked like a bowl of stewed slop but tasted a bit better. The margarita was good and key lime pie... More

Amazing food reasonably priced! I had the grilled Tuna sandwich and my hubby ordered the blackened Mahi Mahi. My sandwich was so thick I could barely get it in my mouth! I will order it blackened next time though. I really liked the seasoning on my hubby's sandwich. The coleslaw had bits of pineapple which added a nice twist. Make... More

We went to the Keylime Bistro specifically because it looked so colourful and quaint in the brochure and the reviews were positive. It was a long drive but the scenery in between was well worth the trip. Our drink order was taken promptly but my float arrived several minutes before everyone else's drink- the glass was only 3/4 full and... More

We just had another enjoyable evening at the Keylime Bistro on Captiva Island, Florida. The outside setting is delightful & the food is delicious.There is music nightly, adding to the ambiance. Manager Andy Biddle, and his daughter Samantha, as hostess, can't do enough for you - and Sonya is the friendliest bartender you'll come across. Well worth the visit.

We returned to Keylime because of great experiences over the past four years, always sitting on the outdoor patio. The first was the best with an acoustic guitar player playing Cat Stevens, Buffet, Marley, etc--standard island music that makes you relax and smile--and improves the taste of food and overall experience. This time around, the food was mediocre. Had the... More
